Cartier-Bresson, Henri. b1908. French photographer, painter and draughtsman

"For me photography is to place one's head, heart and eye along the same line of sight. It is a way of life. This attitude requires concentration, sensitivity, a discipline of mind and a sense of geometry."

"Photography is an immediate reaction, drawing is a meditation."

"To take photographs means to recognize - simultaneously and within a fraction of a second - both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis. "
